I guess I'm wondering why so much effort is put into this when by the time
the kernel gets released for f10 it is already outdated and we are moving
towards a f12 release which will end the support for f10 anyway.
after F11 release and about two months, F9 won't be supported (F10 will)
If f10 and/or kernel 2.6.29 is going to be the baseline for RHEL 6
could see why such an effort is made but other than that, why bother?
